I'm afraid that Apple didn't design the iPad to be used directly connected to a USB device. You would need to transfer any videos that you want on your iPad to iTunes and from there sync them over to the iPad. Hope it helps.

You can actually access your files like movies and music etc from your Mac or wireless hard drive through the 'Plex' app. I use mine with a NAS drive so i didnt always have to leave my mac on to access my files.
